Foreword by Nandan Nilekani, CEO, Infosys.

"An Indian in Cowboy Country is a must read. Pradeep has done an amazing job, with great simplicity, in chronicling an Asian Indian’s journey in an alien society, simultaneously maintaining one’s cultural moorings and moral center."
Nandan Nilekani, CEO, Infosys Technologies Limited

"Pradeep Anand has put together a collection of highly enjoyable stories about the many challenges of being a brown-skinned techie in Texas. Immigrants everywhere will relate to this perceptive and relevant book."
Chitra Divakaruni, award-winning author and poet

"Pradeep Anand has given voice, in a very sincere, real way, to the phenomenon of overachieving Indians assimilating into the fabric of American life. He seems to effortlessly capture the essence of their struggle to fit in while retaining and celebrating very different roots. This journey is comical, poignant, and—until now—little known outside the world of those experiencing it. A good read, whether you grew up in India, the U.S., or anywhere else!"
Michael Berry, Mayor Pro Tem, Houston, Texas

"Businesses, business schools, and cultural studies departments at schools and colleges will benefit immensely from this book. Pradeep Anand weaves, with fascinating simplicity, warm and authentic stories about Asian Indian immigrants and their experiences in America."
Amar Bhidé, Lawrence D. Glaubinger Professor of Business, Columbia University Graduate School of Business

"There is a sense of genuineness about the book. I had a strong conviction about the author's enthusiasm for the worth of attributes such as integrity, cultural diversity, honesty, diligence, and a sense of humor and humility, to temper it all."
Jonathan K. Hustis, EVP-Legal, MetaSolv, Inc.
